Verover de stad

BY MARGRIET VAN KAMPENHOUT
@ VOL 14 ON FEB 10, 2016

Margriet van Kampenhout organiseert initiatieven die het samen leven met beperkingen makkelijker maken. Op 9 april 2016 is dat: ‘Verover de Stad’. Mensen met een beperking laten zich zien in de binnenstad van Leiden, door iets te ondernemen wat ze zelf leuk vinden. Bij obstakels vragen ze hulp. Ze laten anderen aan hun aanwezigheid wennen. Ze wachten niet met zich vrij bewegen tot de stad hen in alle opzichten hindernisvrij verwelkomt en gaan de dialoog aan.
